A command line toolkit for aws dynamodb
dynamotk is a command line toolkit for aws dynamodb that provides some useful utilities that are not supported by dynamodb operations and official aws cli tools.
Using go get
Go version 1.10 or higher is required.

- Table truncate
- Coming soon... (maybe dump/restore features)
# Truncate the `user` table from local dynamodb. dynamotk --endpoint http://localhost:8000 truncate --table-names user # Truncate the `user`, `item` tables from aws dynamodb with default credentials. dynamotk truncate --table-names user,item # You can also pass the `access key id`, `secret access key`, `profile` and `region` optionally. (see `dynamotk -h`) dynamotk --access-key-id xxx --secret-access-key xxx truncate --table-names user,item # Truncation is just (concurrently) repeating the delete operations for all keys. # So if your tables are big, it can cause cost overhead. # In this case, you can use `--recreate` option. # It will delete the table itself and recreate the table while preserving the description. dynamotk --profile prod --region ap-northeast-2 truncate --table-names largetable --recreate
When throttling happens,
dynamotk does not retry read or write (delete request), so some items could be remaining not deleted. I should support
backoff-retry algorithm to fix it.
For now, you should run the
truncate command multiple times until the table becomes empty to overcome this issue or use
